Another lovely day in the outstanding Conway Valley, served by Arriva Buses Wales Service 19, try to get the one that goes via Conway, Rowen, Tyn-y-Groes, Tal-y-Bont and Trefriw, just after you pass Gorse Hill the road bears right, look left into the valley for one of the best views of the river as it meanders down to the sea, you will also pass Trefriw Woolen Mill, Trefriw Spa, one of the biggest mazes in the country-look for two very large white painted urns at entrance, also served by Express Motors Service X1 and Arriva Trains Wales Conway Valley Line, on the walk you once again get spectacular views of the mountains and valley, all farm animals, easier to say except pigs, as witnessed in my other walks Llanrwst and Trefriw, Tal-y-Cafn and Eglwysbach, enjoy.
